Are you sure they date from 2009? Salmond was initially being investigated for two alleged offences dating back to 2013; these were what initiated the crowdfunding campaign. As far as I'm aware, no details of the 'new' 14 offences have been made public, including whether these include the 2013 allegations or not.
The 2009 date in the above post refers to the date of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act, not the date that any offences might have taken place.

OK , I thought the offences were from 2009, my mistake. So we are looking at more recent times. How come it was crowd funded? Was the crime public knowledge? Sounds strange anyway.

2009 is when those laws were enacted because there are changes to a lot of laws over time.

There is a list of staff presenters on LinkedIn but not guest presenters, would be interesting to look at.

Sentencing guidelines for attempted rape.

Sentencing Guidelines for Attempted Rape

An attempt to commit rape is treated in much the same way as the full offence of rape - the starting point for attempted rape should normally be less than for the completed offence - which when contested is 5 years.

14 separate charges, but how many individual alleged victims?
I'd be a little surprised if a woman would keep quiet for two attempted rapes, two indecent assaults and nine sexual assaults before going to the police or otherwise seeking help.

I assume it's at least more than one. There was two in the other investigation. Maybe others have come forward since.

In my case it would be money for old rope :)
You should think more of yourself! You make more sense than most of them.

Ps. I did have to look up what that saying means, so my response is in the context of being money for something worthless.

Old rope is unwound, pulled apart and mixed with tar to make caulking to wedge into planked deck seams.

...But then I might be spinning a yarn :p :D

I have nothing to add other than he is innocent until proven guilty. Apart from my personal opinion that he is an odious bigoted ****spatular.
